A US newspaper says it has received well over 100 applicants for the post of marijuana critic - many of whom have offered to work for free.

The alternative Denver newspaper, Westword, is seeking a writer for its weekly review of Colorado's booming medical marijuana dispensaries.

But there is a catch - candidates must have a medical ailment allowing them to enter a dispensary and use marijuana.

Fourteen US states now allow the sale of some sort of medical cannabis.

'Stoned'


Compensation will be meagre - and no, we can't expense your purchases
Westword job posting

"Keep in mind this isn't about assessing the quality of the medicine on site; it's about evaluating the quality of the establishment," says the Westword job posting.

"After all, we can't have our reviewer be stoned all the time."

States like Colorado and California, where medical use is legal, have seen an explosion in the number of pot shops - ranging from upmarket clinics to dingy drugs dens.

The dispensaries sell more than a dozen varieties, from White Widow to the less expensive Afghan Gold Seal. Some cost up to $130 (78) an ounce.

But the writer of Westword's Mile Highs and Lows column is expected to focus on the dispensaries, not the drugs.

"Compensation will be meagre," says the posting. It says the paper can't pay for marijuana purchases, "although that would be pretty cool."

That's what I'm wondering. Sounds like quite a bargain depending upon the quality. And is anybody surprised at the popularity of these dispensaries? Anyone who's had a pulse for the past decade or two knows there's huge demand for marijuana. Especially at these prices.

Yes, Glaucoma qualifies in several states. Not sure about Colorado, however.

Here in California it doesn't take much to get a card. Just tell the doctor that you can't sleep or have anxiety, pain somewhere and you're in.

I'm in Denver and that figure should be $130/quarter oz.
My wife keeps telling me it is the ideal job for me, but I figure I'm no different then most the applicants.

About the same in Denver now. Pain is the most common one here. There are only a few doctors who do the majority of all medical marijuana cards here and 75% go to young males. So, they are trying to find ways to regulate it more here now that the cat is out of the bag, so to speak.
